Hey, everyone!

You’ve probably noticed I’ve been slow at posting, recently. As in, months between posts. Part of that comes down to a frustration with the Tumblr community.

Those that have followed the blog for a while know that citing sources is extremely important to me. The purpose of this…

Thank you for bringing this up! Your Tumblr and my blog have similar goals and I follow yours and similar Tumblrs in order to find material for future writeups. As such, there is little that frustrates me more than finding an excellent image that would make an effective addition to my Heroines line up, but having to hunt to find the source.

Citing sources isn’t just about giving credit where it is due. It’s also a courtesy to readers, making it easier for those interested to do their own research and investigation into the subject matter. Sadly, the internet in general and Tumblr in particular seems to have lost track of this.

Thanks again for sharing, BiA!

It’s amazing that these paintings are simply backdrops for random dead animals at the Milwaukee Art Museum! Some of these photos are of mere sections of a grander painting, I just wanted to leave out the objects that were in front.

I’m not sure if someone commented, yet…. but this should read “Milwaukee PUBLIC Museum”….

Actually,  have all sorts of problems with this post, because the original poster didn’t see fit to correctly source it in ANY way.

Merit-Ptah
Art by J Bea Young
[x]
Lots of sites will tell you that Merit-Ptah (c. 2700 BCE) is the first woman we know by name in the sciences. She was the Chief Physician to the royal family in Ancient Egypt, and her name and picture appear on a tomb in the necropolis at Saqqara.
The truth is, she’s the first person we know by name in the sciences, male or female. The engineer, architect and physician Imhotep, called "the Father of Medicine", is dated as living from 2650 to 2600 BCE.
To be fair, the dates do seem to be under dispute. But there’s no reason not to go around telling people that the world’s first recorded doctor was probably an African woman.
(I wanted to find the original tomb art, but there are loads of different generic pictures associated with Merit-Ptah’s name on Google Images… can any friendly Egyptologists confirm which one’s legit?)

[mod note] As far as I know, there are no depictions of Merit-Ptah herself, but someone may be able to find an image of her tomb.

ooooooh

OOOH LOOK AT THAT HISTORICAL ACCURACY THO

In which fantasy fiction with characters of color is subjected to the “historical accuracy” test and comes out on top once again…

Okay, video game developers, I need you to work with me on this one.

Terra is Latin for Earth. E A R T H !

Not boobs. Not butts. Earth!

Astral Terra claims to allow you to “generate the type of characters you wish to play in an RPG.” - but honestly I don’t know that many people who have an unfulfilled need to play as a dark elf dressed as a stripper.

something called the ‘judgmental map of milwaukee’ recently made the rounds. it was intentionally insulting/foolish, and if you saw it, maybe you wish you hadn’t? that was certainly the case for me.
in any case, my initial disgust/exhaustion/befuddlement has faded, and i edited the map into a blank slate. the four blanks reflect the way we often reduce the city — the east side, north side, south side, and suburbs.
while we’re on the topic of broad, reductive, speculative gestures, i’m curious how you’d fill those boxes. what few sentences of text would you give to each?
feel free to edit this map.
